Sure this site is full of diehards but the average hockey fan in this town is pretty lame. When/if we miss the playoffs there will hardly be a peep.



Not even fair considering who made that string of hirings.

And it took a social uprising to dethrone that clown.
Well 97.1 is terrible Radio and it's on FM which doesn't cater to the diehards like AM used to. If you wanted to hear people rip the Wings you needed to listen to Stoneyu and Wojo back in the day or Sean Baligian back in the early 2000's. FM only cares about ratings, not quality radio. It's like ESPN how they'd rather show Poker over quality television b/c it gets ratings.

Hosts have to present the topic for them to be ripped, the 97.1 crew knows nothing about hockey or the Wings so there's no opportunity to rip them.
